  • Abstract

    This special topic poll, fielded June 6-7, 1999, sought respondents' views on the peace agreement reached between the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and Serbia, and on a series of political issues pertinent to the United States. Those queried were asked for their opinions on the United States' commitment of 7,000 ground troops as part of a larger NATO peacekeeping force in Serbia, the outcome of the conflict, whether it was right for the United States to become involved, and whether Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevic should be put on trial for war crimes. Respondents were also asked for their opinions of President Bill Clinton, Vice President Al Gore, the United States Congress, the Republican and Democratic parties, Texas Governor George W. Bush, former president of the American Red Cross and presidential hopeful Elizabeth Dole, First Lady Hillary Clinton, and former New Jersey Senator Bill Bradley. Their views were sought on which political party they trusted to do a better job in the areas of crime, foreign affairs, the economy, and encouraging high moral standards. Given a possible match between Gore and Bush for president in the 2000 election, respondents were asked for whom they would vote. They were also asked for their vote choice given a Republican primary or caucus for president in 2000 with candidates Bush, Dole, Arizona Senator John McCain, businessman Steve Forbes, New Hampshire Senator Bob Smith, former Vice President and Indiana Senator Dan Quayle, conservative commentator Pat Buchanan, former Tennessee Governor Lamar Alexander, Ohio Congressman John Kasich, Family Research Council president Gary Bauer, and radio show host Alan Keyes. Finally, given a Democratic primary or caucus for president in 2000 with candidates Gore, Bradley, and Reverend Jesse Jackson, respondents were asked to indicate their vote. Background information on respondents includes age, race, sex, education, political party, voter registration status, and income.
